"They don't have fluronated water or an obsession with having the whitest straightest teeth like we do in the west. I fail to see what this has to do with a singing competition."
Norway is one of the richest, and one of the best countries to live in.
And no, there NOT walking any bears around the streets. We have a hot, hot summer like most of the world.
The race is back!
No bears? That clinches it - I'm crossing Norway off my vacation list
Thanks, Dan1el, for dispelling some of the US-centric inaccuracies that some of us hold.
Kurt Nilsen have a amazing voice I really hope Kurt winns World Idol, he really deserve it ;-) Go kurt!!!
Well, they will only ship within the EU and Scandinavia, so if you're in North America and want to buy his CD, you can do so from Zailor. It might be a bit more expensive due to relatively high Norwegian prices, added shipment costs, and possibly toll.

Ordering from Zailor is a bit tricky since most of their site is in Norwegian, but don't worry, they have a lot of information in English:
1) Go to http://www.zailor.no/kundeservice/eng/faq_eng.asp
2) Read about everything you need to know before placing an order. In their FAQ you will find step-by-step instructions on how to register as a customer and how to order, so follow these steps. You will also find translations of order confirmation emails etc., so study the FAQ carefully.
3) Open a new window at http://www.zailor.no/ and do a "CD Artist" search for Kurt Nilsen.
4) Now follow the instructions in the FAQ on how to order!
Hope this helps :o)
If Kurt Nilsen wins, he proves that beuty is not everything.
I realize this is off-topic, but what the heck. Most Norwegians are very proud of their country and feel obligated to snuff the ignorance about it around the world

I hadn't seen that image before, it's pretty hilarious.
I think you are confused.

That is a really funny image.
I've decided that I would prefer guy to win over Kurt, and I think part of the reason is that I just don't like it when a particular singer is hyped so much (like he seems to be on these boards) I know, it shouldn't have anything to do with that, and it should have everything to do with singing, but I just can't take it... I like his singing and all, but I have the need to root for an underdog. I liked Clay and Ruben on AI2 until I realized that they were headed for the F2, and so I continued to cheer for KLo... anyway, I know I'm going to hear a lot about how Kurt is an amazing singer... etc, but I already know that.
I think that about covers it.
Superstar in the making
I think Kurt did a great job with that song, but it could possibly have been a one off if the contestants were to sing more than one song, but we'll never know. But I think he has a very good chance of winning for his voice regardless of his looks.
Some of the songs on Guy's album were songs he had wrote himself, very impressive. Go the Fro.
